Adjunct Senior Lecturer
Research Group Leaders

My research interests include cleaner fish behaviour, cooperation, fish parasites and coral reef ecology. My current projects seek to determine whether larval fish leave the reef to avoid parasites; do cleaner fish control fish diseases transmitted by parasites; is the cleaner fish-client fish symbiosis a model multispecies mutualism; what are the ecological consequences of fish cleaning behaviour; and the role of colour in communication between cleaner fish and their hosts.
